  •  Yeah, that whole democracy thing is such a bore. (15+ / 0-)

    And so goofy!

    The guy wants to know where HIS REPRESENTATIVE  stands on issues. He tries several routes, including going to the rep's office, gets nowhere, and the later joins the opposition. Sounds laudable to me. But then, there's no accounting for taste.

    As for what you think is key to the situation, it's not. The rep's campaign is not focusing on what an opponent's staffer is doing. The campaign is using every situation to its advantage, just like other campaigns should WHEN ETHICAL and LEGAL. One of those several situations is this staffer. Could have been anything or anyone, and will be, as time goes on. Next week they'll be smearing Cowley on some other fantasy issue.

    What IS key is that Kline's campaign, or Kline himself, is acting unethically and possibly illegally. THAT is key.
